    Omagh Goods Yard

    Progress on Omagh Goods Yard is starting to take shape with the basic contours formed and track laid, though not pinned yet. The different levels give it a feeling of depth and this is something I haven't tried before, the results are pleasing. Long way to go yet but I'm taking my time and really enjoying the progress so far.

    I've come to the conclusion that railway modelling and l are not compatible any longer. Yesterday, I lifted all my trackwork and this morning my son disposed of all baseboards to the local dump. I cleared out the shed and I have had a good spring clean in it. It's in prime condition. I am now going to take a complete break before deciding what to do next. I'm making no plans and certainly no promises!

    Garden Sheds and Heat

    In a high quality garden shed with Rockwool insulation around the walls and roof area, I was thinking of using an oil-filled radiator while I'm in there over winter months. I have ventilation at each gable of the shed through a 9"x4" vent and I allowed some air to circulate at the eaves by bringing the insulation back from the eaves slightly. Would this promote condensation? Any other shed users out there?

    I don't think there is an ounce of modelling energy left in me............

    Thank you for your words of encouragement David, they were always great encouragement to me. I'm taking a break from railway modelling and the number of times I drop in here. Gardening projects to keep me occupied.

    Display Cabinets

    I know it sounds like a sin but does anyone know of nice display cabinets/shelves where you can store rolling stock - loco's and wagons - in the home.

    and finally, theres a good likelihood that a layout in the garden shed may come to an end very soon. I've had my belly full of hiding like a hermit in the shed with a hoodie and beanie on. This weekend I'm going to buy the wife a nice Indian and a bottle of her favourite red wine. Then I'm going to suggest that build a small end to end in my piano room, sitting on top of a series of 'Ikea Billy Bookcases'. It will be purely be a system to store all my railway books, vinyl, rolling stock and DVDs. On top, a simple end to end shunting layout measuring 2metres x 180mm. The shed will remain only as a workshop to build stock and scratch build.

    Thanks, i'll check it out. Looks like the ideal retirement present for my railway efforts! https://www.argos.co.uk/product/8720791?cmpid=GS001&_$ja=tsid:59157|acid:480-316-7430|cid:199887513|agid:17470456473|tid:pla-92279696073|crid:74692316193|nw:g|rnd:3617982153281093449|dvc:c|adp:1o1|mt:|loc:1007290&gclid=Cj0KCQiAmuHhBRD0ARIsAFWyPwi_j_r_0GigtAoCDvh7esVBp3vc7V4s122hMptm7IFZFtrUVrP_rNMaAs6QEALw_wcB

    Paddy, if its the embankments you refer to, they were formed with plywood cut to shape as supports and paris plaster bandage draped over it. Although I used about five layers of plaster bandage I'm not really pleased with it as it is NOT rock hard like a plaster cast would be on a broken arm or leg. I think it may be because the shed was quite cold when I done it and it hasn't dried out quick enough!

    Paddy, also Wills Scenic Sheet. I took two pieces of 1.5mm birch ply and glued them together with woodworking glue. They were clamped together and placed in a former to curve them. 24hours later they were set so l took the wills sheeting and moulded them into a similar shape by bending them gentle over the edge of my bench. I stuck the sheeting to the ply using UHU glue and when dry cut it to shape with a scroll saw.

    Paddy, no Wills Scenic Sheet glued to 1.5mm birch ply.

    Little, but some progress...... Road bridge over North Cabin end of Omagh, far from complete but getting there. Have put cork under track work - I bought it a year ago - I may as well use it. Testing track at moment and just taking my time....

    21mm gauge track; the pros and cons?

    Noel, which of the ballast materials are you using here, looks great!

    Just back in from the shed, all embankments looking less like cliff-faces. David, as you say - easily remedied now. Glad I done it! Broithe, thanks for an interesting article also.

    There is one part of the embankment that is very vertical and this is where a signal cabin was mounted. At this point there needed to be some sort of foundation, as in Omagh. I also recall there being steps placed in the embankments to allow easy access to the lower level where a pump house filled the water cranes for locos. However, after a sleepless night (thanks David), I was in the shed this morning reducing my slopes and adding a few more layers of plaster bandage!

    I actually had less slope originally, though it was pretty steep in parts.....
